Coursework for Success

Advisement and Counseling

In order to best ensure your success, we have a Mandatory Placement policy that requires students who score below minimum levels in reading, writing and/or math to take transitional coursework to develop their academic skills prior to enrollment into certain courses. For additional information or guidance regarding the mandatory placement guidelines, contact the Online Advisor.

You may add any of these classes to your schedule with the assistance of your academic advisor or by registering online.
